If you manage your company’s workforce mobility program, your world has likely changed dramatically over the past year.
Pre-pandemic, things like tougher visa regulations, Brexit, Posted Worker notifications, and vigorously enforced tax laws were making work-related travel more complex. Post-pandemic, these issues have been exacerbated by COVID travel restrictions and remote work arrangements. Moreover, there’s a greater sense of urgency around duty of care and knowing where your employees are working.
Not surprising, this has given rise to a new class of challenges that can leave companies overwhelmed.
In response, we’ve launched Weichert SMARTRIPTM, a groundbreaking solution for companies to manage their fluid workforce with greater transparency and efficiency and mitigate the associated risks.
SMARTRIP is intuitive technology that assesses each employee trip against the latest travel, tax, COVID and visa/immigration requirements, allowing employees to “know before they go” and move without the penalties, restrictions and reputational damage that compliance violations can bring.
Once your employees are where you need them, SMARTRIP provides ongoing monitoring to ensure they stay compliant with visa/immigration and tax requirements, giving you added confidence and peace of mind.
SMARTRIP is also a powerful global talent management tool, strengthening duty of care by enabling your HR or Security teams to locate and communicate with employees in the event of an emergency and get them to safety when necessary. This reduces anxiety and improves the overall employee experience.
As Janet Markle, Senior Regional Vice President and one of the program’s architects explained, “SMARTRIP is the only solution of its kind to track and synergize immigration, tax and duty of care data into actionable information that companies can use to make the right decisions at the right time when it comes to their mobile talent.”
